  1. This tut is great for getting to know the tools in PDN. As a relative new user of PDN, I had a bit of trouble following some of the instructions, but I did okay, and I'm sure I picked up some skills that will continue to be useful in the future. Thanks Frozen_Byte!
  2. There might be an easier way, but I've discovered that I can draw a square, make it chrome, use the right mouse button to rotate it and then put another shape inside of it before trimming to fit. Its a lot of little steps but it works well enough to suit my current needs.
  3. 1. I was already familiar with the move tool, but I only know how to move the entire object with it. Likewise, if I use the "rotate" option, it rotates the entire object. If I were to create a chrome cylinder, how do I rotate the chrome pattern inside of it without rotating the cylinder itself? Is it possible? Am I missing something incredibly obvious? 2. Thanks! Works great! 3. Thanks again! Works great! 4. I went back to the thread and found it working. I've downloaded the Shape 3d plugin and found it works incredibly well and is very easy to use.
  4. Hey Ash, thanks for the easy Tut! I created a 3d oval and it worked great. I played around with the conditional H&S settings but I couldn't figure out how to change the "reflections" to anything other than vertical or horizontal. Is there a way to set the angle of the H&S or rotate it once it is in place without affecting the surrounding objects? Also, is there a way to do a colored chrome using the method you have listed? Thanks! Edit: Just thought of another question. If I'm doing a cone shape, is there an easy way to make the reflections narrow as they approach the point? Do
